The Facts about James Anderson’s Aviation Accident and Settlement Process

James Anderson, a mechanic, was involved in a tragic helicopter accident at Shoalwater Bay. He was being ferried to a remote mountaintop emergency broadcast site for vegetation management when the pilot misjudged the landing approach, resulting in a crash that fatally injured the pilot and seriously injured James. He managed to extricate himself from the wreck and later engaged Peter Carter to pursue the organisation he was contracted to for failing to implement adequate safety measures.
